Thanks to our sponsor: AV-Comparatives

My sincere thanks to AV-Comparatives who sponsored my writing this week.

AV-Comparatives is an independent organization offering systematic testing that checks whether security software, such as PC/Mac-based antivirus products and mobile security solutions, lives up to its promises.

Using one of the largest sample collections worldwide, it creates a real-world environment for truly accurate testing. AV-Comparatives offers freely accessible results to individuals, news organizations and scientific institutions.

The AV-Comparatives Summary Report 2014 is now available! Find out which products scored best in its public main-test series of 2014.

Certification by AV-Comparatives provides an official seal of approval for software performance which is globally recognized.

Currently, AV-Comparatives’ Real-World Protection Test is the most comprehensive and complex test available when it comes to evaluating the real-life protection capabilities of antivirus software. Put simply, the test framework replicates the scenario of an everyday user in an everyday online environment – the typical situation that most of us experience when using a computer with an internet connection.

AV-Comparatives works closely with several academic institutions, especially the University of Innsbruck’s Department of Computer Science, to provide scientific testing methods.
